Casement windows are windows that are attached the frame by hinges, normally at the side. They are used singly or in pairs within a common frame, with hinges on the outside. These can be held open using casement stays. Windows with top hinges are awning windows, and those with bottom hinges are called hoppers.

In the UK, casement windows were common seen while sash windows were introduced much later. These were made of metal with leaded glass, which are panes of glass, held in place with strips of lead. These casement windows came with side hinges with inward openings. Variants of these Victorian casement windows are still used in Europe.

Windows made of one or more movable panels are called Sash windows. These panels form a framework that holds panes of glass, separated from other panes by glazing bars. Sash windows open by sliding vertically or horizontally and were first installed in England in the 1670s. Sash windows were commonly seen in Victorian homes, with three panes across by two up on each of two sash, giving a six over six-panel window. Counter-weight within the window frame balances the weight of the glazed panel.
